Anyone know of any other than Petra?

Would like to use a family name as a middle name even if it is a girl but can't think of how to feminise Peter (other than Petra which I'm not loving).

Peta is the 'girl' spelling.

peta? (maybe only if you are into animal rights though)

It's not an easy name to feminise. Could you just stick it in as it is (there must be girls with mn Peters what is an s here of there)

You could always use Cephas (less people know it so you could use it for a mn for a girl) And you still get Peter.

wearenotamused - I had wondered about that too. I'm not sure I'd love a man's mn though myself..

Petronella.

To be honest, I would stick with Petra if you really want to use this as a family name.

Pia?

Has a different root and meaning but sounds a bit like Peter.

Just use Peter. My second middle name is a family surname which sounds quite masculine and I think i's cool.

Lucie Elizabeth Peter Smith.

Petrova! sounds terrible, but it's the great middle sister from ballet shoes, the one who hates ballet and really wants to be an engineer instead.
